My parents took me and my husband for a nice adult dinner for my birthday. The owner and hostess with the mostest was great. The meals were fabulous. My husband and mother got the prime rib. My dad the blue cheese stuffed filet and I got the halibut special. Scrumptious!! I would dine here again. And if you are lucky... More

All three of us enjoyed our delicious meal, a nice bottle of wine, and delicious homemade dessert. We sampled the shrimp pasta in saffron creme sauce, a stuffed halibut and an Alaskan rockfish with shrimp and clam sauce. All three were deliciously prepared, and the servings were large. Attentive service. Lovely photo ops here on a clear day.

We arrived kinda early, well before 5 pm when the restaurant opens (but hey, it was in October, so then you have to eat early if you then still want to find a place to camp...), but that was no problem, they opened for us, apologised that food was not ready yet, but we could order and have a drink...

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance on our drive back to Anchorage from Seward. We were given a very warm welcome by Pepe, the owner. The food and service was great. Pepe was a very entertaining and charismatic host. We were happy to have stopped by!

Pepe is a hoot. He has stories for everything and never hesitates to entertain. The food was OK, not great but not awful. We had calamari appetizers and oysters. The oysters were good, the fried calamari was greasy. The calamari in sauce was excellent. I had halibut and it was a bit dry. My husband had salmon and it was... More

After reading the reviews of this place, it appears that others' experiences vary from excellent to poor. We must have hit it on a good night. We were visiting Anchorage, and on our way back from a glacier cruise in Whittier, we decided to try this place. I had not yet had good seafood since arriving in AK. The waiter... More

Drove out from anchorage in the sunbeam convertible for a gorgeous drive down the arm. It's been a few years since we tried pepe's after finding the earlier service and quality short of the old Turnagain house's prior excellence. Nothing has changed.... Slow service and inconsistent quality. The halibut Italiano was OK, but not what it could have been with... More

I went with a group, so I will way that maybe part of the issue with the number of people, however, they should have been expecting that many. Decor - I like the rustic feel, but the carpet in the entryway was just nasty. It smelled and I am not sure why they keep it. Service - Decent. The staff... More

this restaurant is a hidden gem. Went to a client dinner and they said this place is about a Half hour south of Anchorage. The drive is incredible but pay attention to the road. The food was amazing. Crab stuffed halibut was really good. All the dishes at our table looked good. Pepe is from Barcelona and his personal touches... More

My husband and I have driven by Pepe's several times and decided to give it a try for our date night about a week and a half ago (3/21/15). My father took a trip to Spain last year and made a delicious tapas feast for us over the holidays, so we felt inspired to try some other Spanish dishes (supposedly... More

Outstanding little restaurant just outside of Anchorage. Featured the best oysters (fresh Alaskan) I've ever had in my life -- and I've had lots of oysters!
